I am awesome (and I'd like to thank all the friends who've helped me be able to say that). Because I've taught myself to cook. Because I play the ukulele unironically. Because I go the extra mile for my friends. Because I call my mother at least once a week. Because I am a historian, and I am going to be a professional historian, and nothing life has thrown at me has been able to take away that dream, including raising 2 kids with multiple chronic medical problems. Because I love to cuddle. Because I'm not afraid to wear a silly hat in public. Because I've pubbed my ish. Because I know when to hold 'em, when to fold 'em, and when to form my cavalry into a square. Because I'm always willing to learn something new. Because I lived to tell the tale. Because I do it my way. Because I'm willing to listen to what you have to say, and I expect the same courtesy from you.
Dramatis personae Here are some people I will often refer to in this journal: A.: My wife, lover, best friend, etc. Z.: Our daughter, currently in high school. L.: Our son, currently in elementary school. Sylvie: Our dachshund. E.: A friend of mine who often takes part in our adventures.
Feel free to poke around, but be aware that the majority of what I post is F-locked. If you'd like to be added, comment to any public entry letting me know you're here.
If you'd like to read my fanfics, you can find an organizational post here.
